Areas of Austria

The federal structure of the Austrian Republic makes its lands equal subjects with some independent legislative powers. Historically, the central power in the country is concentrated in the capital. The modern territory of Austria is divided into nine states, one of which is the capital city of Vienna. All regions of Austria have their own flag and coat of arms, and their governments are composed of the land governor and his advisers.

Repeating the alphabet

The most fertile Austrian lands are located in the Danube Valley, and therefore the largest number of the country's population is concentrated here. The regions of Upper and Lower Austria, Vienna and Burgenland are a granary for grapes and other crops. The main industrial enterprises are also located here..
Areas of Austria that are on the map in the eastern foothills of the Alps are of little use for any kind of economy. Carinthia and Salzburg, Styria and Vorarlberg and, finally, the highest among them Tyrol are territories occupied by mountain slopes, and most of their inhabitants have found their vocation in the tourism industry. The trails of the best Austrian ski resorts run down in thin snakes along the mountain slopes of these particular areas..
